Ascent Trip Report

Walked up the road to the campground and then up to the first high point. Had lunch there and then went over to the main summit. Views were quite nice, especially of Fable. Way down required some route finding due to the snow covering the trail. Nice and short summit. 1 year of friendship with Wade and mountain adventures.
